To make local moving or long distance moving less stressful, we offer the following tips:
Get Organized - Early! - Unless you're truly in a hurry, the best time to plan and organize your move is as soon as you know it's going to happen. We recommend starting 30 to 60 days beforehand to write up a plan to make sure everything is done in an organized and stress-free manner.
Moving Day - Of course your belongings will be packed up and boxed but don't leave choosing a moving company until the last minute. Use our Free Move Estimate service to choose a company with the best rates at least a week before moving day.
Communicate With Your Movers - After you've found the right moving company for you, make sure that you stay in contact with them to let them know what to expect on moving day. Special delivery instructions, overweight items, and fragile items all require unique handling so always keep your moving company in the loop.
Estimate Your Moving Needs - It can be hard to guess how much space will be required for all your items. The rule of thumb is that one studio apartment's worth of items can fit in a 16-foot cube truck. A household with 2-3 bedrooms will require a full-size 24-26' truck to move in just one load.
Packing Tips - The best way to pack up your home is to complete one entire room at a time. Be sure to label every box and package and denote any fragile items.
First Night Survival Kit - Another great idea is to pack up a suitcase or couple of boxes with everything you'll need for the first day and night in your new home. Be sure to include toiletries, snacks, water, a flashlight, baby supplies, matches, light bulbs, a change of clothes, your phone charger(s), medication, and pet food.
Garage Sale - Moving house is a great time to weed out old items that you no longer need. You can either donate these unneeded items to charity or hold a garage sale to raise a few bucks towards the cost of moving.
